Jerry West Called Russell Westbrook The “Reincarnation of Michael Jordan” (VIDEO)
Say what, now?
After shattering records and doing something no player has done since Oscar Robertson, Jerry West is pretty sure we are witnessing the reincarnation of Michael Jordan in the OKC Thunder’s Russell Westbrook.
While appearing on ESPN on Friday, the 78-year-old Los Angeles Lakers legend had this to say about the ‘Plastic man’ as he called him.
“We’re looking at a reincarnation of Michael Jordan,” adding that he might be better athletically than the player many believe to be the greatest player of all-time.
